Crown Chakra

CROWN / SAHASRARA

Facebook Live Video

This is at the very top of your head, where the skull bones meet, and extends about 3 finger widths above your head.

It relates to your soul, your higher self, spirituality and wisdom. It also relates to your connection with the source of divinity (whatever you believe that may be!) Bliss, Beauty and Spirituality. Spirituality is not linked to any particular religion and this concept can be perceived via your own core belief system. You are connected to whatever version of divinity or divine consciousness you acknowledge. Even if you are not religious there is scientific data which suggests all living things are linked in some form of collective consciousness.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” Wayne Dyer.

Symbol: light violet lotus of a thousand petals, arranged in 20 rows of 50 petals, which contain the 50 letters of the sanksrit alphabet, inside the lotus are the mandalas for the full moon and the sun, which are an integration of female and male energy.

Happiness that comes from within, not from outside material sources.

This can be silent contemplative time, breath works or Pranayama, listening to guided meditations or using brainwaive sound technology (binural beats).

If your crown chakra is balanced you will be experiencing a balanced spiritual life, you will have a sense of purpose about your life, and you will feel connected with your higher self and the universe (or source of divinity). You will also likely display character traits of wisdom and be insightful. Faith in the divine and your inner guidance, insight into healing and devotion.

Forgives easily in the knowledge that this physical world is an illusion or physical experience of our spiritual self.

Healing and Balancing

So what do you do if you have a blocked or unbalanced Crown Chakra?

My first piece of advice is to stop, find some quiet time, and really assess what the root cause of such a problem might be. It will be far more useful if you can clear the blockage, deal with the root cause, and then just work on maintaining the free movement of your energy centres rather than continually fighting to unblock and balance your energy over and over if the underlying problem isn’t fixed.

Then you can use a crystal of the appropriate type for that chakra, here the Crown, so above the head. Rotate it anticlockwise initially to release any blockages, and then clockwise to energize the relevant chakra. You can also lie for around 10 – 15 minutes with the appropriate

you can also use Essential Oils to great effect in balancing and unblocking chakras. Simply apply a small amount of the appropriate oil to the chakra area.

Reiki treatment will also work very well to balance out all of your chakras and get your energy flowing in no time at all.

Sound healing, inclduing sound baths, and the use of mantra, singing or binural beats will all impact on the chakras as sound is of itself a frequency which can be altered to match that of the chakra in question.

Light / Colour therapy, including simply wearing the colour associated with the chakra all the way through to a full light / colour therapy session where you will be subjected to lights of various colours pointed at the chakra centres.

As this chakra is about your connection to the universe or divinity or the source then create an altar or sacred space for meditation with items that correspond to this chakra. In meditation imagine a violet white light pouring in through your crown chakra, flowing down through your body and out of your feet, it then comes up and around creating a bubble of light around you. Rest your awareness on your breath, now imagine that with every exhalation that the bubble expands first to the size of your room, then your house , your town, your country and finally the entire earth. Imagine everything in the bubble is protected from any negativity and that everything is connected by one universal consciousness. Feel that level of connection to other people (it really does exist if you try hard enough) and then carry that feeling with you throughout your day. I am nothing and I am everything. I am you and You are me. If you act without compassion to others then you are doing so to yourself. If you act with love and compassion then you are helping to raise the vibration of the collective consciousness and it will have a positive effect on the world.

Why do these things work?

Each Essential Oil, Crystal, sound and colour have their own vibrational frequency. So does the human body, and in particular each Chakra has it’s own frequency. This frequency is lowered when the Chakra is blocked / unbalanced, and it can be positively affected by using crystals and oils with the right frequency to match. Reiki in much the same way is an alteration of the energy in and around the body by channeling energy of a much higher vibrational frequency.

These methods can effectively be used alone or in unison, and will have a hugely beneficial impact on a person when used together.

Affirmations

Brow Chakra

Third Eye

The third eye chakra is just above the bridge of the nose in the middle of the brow. Historically we were far more attuned to our intuition, which is represented by the third eye. However, over time as our society became more and more technologically advanced the connection was diminished. However, moving into the Aquarian Age there is a heightening of our intuitive nature, and a collective raising of our consciousness in readiness for our transcendence as a planet. Many believe that deities speak to us via our intuition, others that it is our Higher Self, or our spirtual guides (which can take many forms from animals, ancestors, to spiritual beings and those from other planets and star systems). Whatever your core beliefs here it is clear that our gut feeling is more often than not correct.

Many people don’t trust their intuition, they question where it comes from, or don’t like the advice being given because it doesn’t fit with their intellectualized plan, or their desires. However, if we trust our intuition it can be an extremely useful tool to hone and it has your best interests at heart.

When the third eye chakra is open and activated a person is able to embrace their intuition or inner knowing and build on their repertoire of psychic skills.

Archetypes

NEGATIVE = The Intellectual / Perception

The Intellectual is rational, factual, rigid and never quotes finds the right path in life.

POSITIVE = The Wise Person

A wise person is flexible, as they do not limit their Mind with perceptions which can fade, ideas which are changing like the winds. Instead, they access the wisdom of the universe and follow their intuition. And above all else, a wise person never lets go of their sense of humour!

In Balance

Intuitive, common sense, fast learner, clear memory, sense of spirituality.

Out of Balance:

Non sympathetic / Empathetic, judgemental, over intellectualising, lacking intuition, lacking common sense, forgetful, sleep / dream / nightmare issues, unexplained blurred vision, headaches, migraines, blocked sinuses, earache, insomnia, nightmares.

Balancing & Healing

The first thing that I would suggest for third eye blockages is to meditate on a suitable crystal such as Amethyst. It doesn’t need to be a large piece but a rough piece is useful as you can get lost in its inclusions and flaws. ‘

You can apply some of an appropriate essential oil (or a blend for that chakra – shout if you want some info) to your third eye area before you meditate. Remembering to rub it in anti clockwise first, then clockwise. This will assist you in your meditation.

The key with the third eye is to be open to the experiences you may have when your energy flows well in this area. Sound baths are great for activating your third eye. As is sleeping with Amethyst under the pillow.

You may find that as you free the energy in this area, and activate your third eye you get a pulsating sensation in the area, you may also see white and then purple / indigo light through your third eye. Do not be afraid, this won’t remain there all the time.

Affirmations

An important part of a clear flow through your third eye chakra is your mindset. A helpful tool is to use affirmations each morning. for example:

‘I trust my intuition’

‘I am open to spiritual experiences’

Heart Chakra Balancing

Heart

The heart chakra is located in the area of the heart. There are also minor linked chakras in the palms of your hands.

Archetypes

NEGATIVE [perception] = The Actor

The Actor, a conditional lover who doesn’t know or understand unconditional love, yet may talk about it, yet may act like it.

POSITIVE [Truth] = The Lover [also known as the doorway to the revelation of the Authentic]

The Lover is open, loving, generous. The heart is also known as the “approval chakra”. The lover follows her heart and is led by the Spirit which is constantly speaking through it. She goes within to find what she seeks.

Healing & Balancing

For blockages / imbalance I would suggest having Rose Quartz close to the heart, as this is the stone of unconditional love. If you need particularly gentle healing then Unakite is the crystal for you. Also you can use a worry stone, see what you are drawn to from your collection or the shop you go into.

You can apply some of an appropriate essential oil (or a blend for that chakra – shout if you want some info) to your heart area in the morning. Remembering to rub it in anti clockwise first, then clockwise. This will set you up for each day ahead. A really good tip is to use one of the associated oils on your heart and third eye chakra for a way to help the energy flow but also for protection in matters of the heart and to link your heart and intuition. My favourite for this purpose is Melissa!

Remember, the heart chakra is one of the most likely to become imbalanced at various times in our lives… bearing in mind the emotional rollercoaster that plays out in most peoples lives. Loss of a loved one / friend, heartbreak, puberty, friendship and fall outs, illness of people / pets we love, guilt about not hitting the right work life balance… the list goes on!

Affirmations

A helpful tool is to use affirmations each morning. for example:

‘I give and receive love easily’

‘I am love, I let love in’

‘I am kind to myself’
